Had a beautiful reception here. While it seems everywhere else in Texas is brown & dead, the botanical gardens were nice a green. The gardens resturant provided affordable catering not to mention a view of the botanical gardens without the heat. (My wedding was near the end of August). Also, any who wanted (and crazily enough there were a few) were more than welcome to enjoy the actual gardens.

We had our reception at the Gardens Restaurant which is located inside of the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. It was very lovely and the food was incredible. It even looked amazing, and tasted even better. We worked with Amy, but I don't think she's there any longer. She was really nice and went over the menu with us and helped us with all of the details. We did a buffet with blackened chicken in cajun sauce, beef kabobs, roasted new potatoes, green beans, salad, rolls, tea, water, and champagne for just over 100 people and it was only $2800. Plus it's in the gardens and so the views are excellent.

I was the day-of coordinator for a wedding held in the Japanese Gardens at the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens. The catering staff was very willing to help in any way needed... not just in the area of catering. We had to re-set the pavilions after the ceremony for the reception. The staff asked several times if there was anything they could do to help. One of the staff members prepared plates for myself and my assistant. The display of food was beautiful and there was so much to chose from. Loved the big china plates they provided. It is a great thing to be able to fill your plate and have room to do so. Thanks Garden's Restaurant :)

This is the restaurant that's in the the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. We decided to go through them because it seemed convenient and the food was good. At first, we had a difficult time with clarity regarding the bills, but in the end everything turned out okay. My mother was very stressed out when we were told about an added fee that they formally didn't mention.
We had these hors d'oeuvres that were amazing. They were avocado halves stuffed with a light chicken salad. Oh my gosh, to die for! So, the food is pretty good here.

Also, a very important thing to mention is how AMAZING the staff was at my reception! They were on top of things! They kept bringing our bridal table food and making sure our drinks were full! They even offered to cut the cake and that wasn't part of the deal! They were also very freakin' nice and were genuinely happy about our wedding. They even left us notes congratulating us! I didn't find those until after the honeymoon and it really made me smile.

All in all, a great experience!

This was my brother in law's wedding, so I can't speak to value for price because I was not involved in the payment aspect. I dealt with Samantha to help coordinate gluten free meals for 5 guests including myself. She was great and helpful and answered all my pushy emails. We added to the number of special plates needed several times (including the day before the event) and they were always great about it. The special plates were tasty and we even had a surprise GF dessert that was wonderful. The servers were helpful in finding the gluten free guests and attentive. During the meal I was pleased with the service of all the workers, keeping glasses of tea full and removing empty plates. They were professional in manner and dress.
